pelePele: If Messi wants to be the best ever first he must become better than Neymar
Brazilian football idol Pele has restated his belief that Neymar is a better player than Barcelona star Lionel Messi, and argued that the Argentine must first overcome the young Santos star before he can challenge 'O Rei' as the greatest to ever play the game.
The three-time World Cup winner was speaking on Tuesday at a press conference marking Santos' centenary celebrations in April 2012. Never shy about publicizing the ability of Neymar to the press, the 71-year-old pushed the youngster ahead of Messi in his list of the world's current stars.
"Now everyone is talking about Messi, he is a star. But [to be the best ever] he must first become better than Neymar," he asserted. "At the moment Messi is just more experienced."
The Brazilian also played down the public feud he has allegedly maintained with Diego Maradona, insisting that there is no bad blood between the two men.
"You [journalists] are always saying that I am Maradona's rival, but it is not true. I was never his rival, and he was a great attacking midfielder," the legend explained.
Pele, the same man who named Robinho as his successor.
Anyone following Pele on twitter? He just made an account.
Pele's really getting older.
72 goals. in one season. incredible.
...and with 2 matches still to play. is 80 out of the question??
many strikers in Europe retire with less goals scored than Messi did in one season.
Have you seen his free kicks lately against Espanyol? It's getting more accurate.
I see a much more improved Messi next season. He is endless
Just want to share this documentary about Lionel Messi being the World's Greatest Player not just now but of all time.
A must watch. Enjoy!!!
Messi will surely eclipse Pele's record of 75 goals in a season for club and country.
Question is: will he eclipse Gerd Müller's 85?
with 16 Club matches and 2 international friendlies, i'm very very sure he can beat gerd mueller's 85
I'm predicting 4 more hat tricks at least.
